in reply to RE: Fido and Amelia
in thread Fido and Amelia

That's it!

But if you look in Fido, page 5 or so, you'll notice there's a similar line in a list of examples, that says:

$fido = new Camel 'Fido';

So now the "new Camel" is Amelia, and then it was Fido. We are interested in the Camel, not in the scalar variable that holds a reference to it...

And, well, a lot has changed (in the book, if not in Perl), for example, I heard that the chapter about regular expressions is new and very good (and probably written by Jon).

    Ah! I hadn't spotted $fido on page 5 of my book. Ok then, I'm convinced. Fido and Amelia it is.

    But I still have little intention of buying Amelia anytime soon, as Fido is sufficient for my needs at the moment.

    Incidentally, I once asked Larry what the camel's name was, and he told me it was named Amelia.
